Hi Christian -

DN's coverage of this has been fantastic so far - thank you!   I kind
of feel like a lot of us on the ground are too busy to tweet.  Since
I've been buried in Internet-related stuff I get most of my news about
plaza related happenings from a few journalists who you probably
follow already - Max Blumenthal (@MaxBlumenthal) and Sarah Jaffe
(@seasonothebitch) but that's mostly retweets and analysis (Sarah
Jaffe's tumblr has also had good on-the-ground analysis

Hello Internet Working Group,

I work with the Democracy Now! social media team and we are working to put
together a Twitter list of people reporting from Liberty Plaza (and related
actions in NYC) on a daily basis, hoping that this will be a resource for
our producers and the public on following the latest from OWS. We have
looked through your Twitter followers in detail, but thought it would be
worth asking for your recommendations of the best handles/people to follow.
We are hoping to add people on Twitter to our list who will be tweeting from
the plaza and upcoming protests throughout the upcoming weeks.

For those unfamiliar with Democracy Now!, our daily news hour has been
covering the protests since their inception. You can access an archive of
our reporting at

We look forward to staying in touch with you as this movement grows.

All the best,
